Xceed today released version 3.0 of Xceed DataGrid for WPF Professional Edition, the most mature, most feature-rich, and fastest grid control available for Windows Presentation Foundation. A fully functional trial version is available now for download from Xceed's website.

Version 3.0 of the Professional Edition of Xceed DataGrid for WPF features the addition of striking, flexible 3D capabilities. The included Cardflow™ 3D view gives developers and end-users complete control over aspects such as card offsets, spacing, and angles; camera position and angle; and field of view. Its multiple card layouts and transitions give total flexibility in the way that title, image, and data regions are displayed. End-users can even switch between any 2D and 3D view on the fly, while the datagrid retains its state. The Cardflow™ view can be seen online in the Xceed DataGrid for WPF Live Explorer (click on Displaying Data, then 3D Views). Additional 3D views are being developed and will be added as they become available.

A choice of four multi-surface themes is provided for use with this new view: Three Office themes (Blue, Black, Silver), and Chameleon, whose gradient colors can be chosen. Several new backgrounds usable with all views are also provided, as are textures for the 3D and 2D cards.

Also new to version 3.0 of the Professional Edition are column virtualization, column stretching and column widths supporting star values, and custom sorting, as well as performance increases, the ability to handle millions of rows and thousands of columns while delivering an exceptional end-user experience, improved validation architecture, support for IDataErrorInfo, easy binding to XML data sources, and inserting records into non-IBindingList sources.

Xceed DataGrid for WPF Professional Edition is available in cost-effective team and site licenses. Standard e-mail support is provided with the Professional Edition, but adding a Vanguard subscription gives upgrades and priority support for an entire year. Full C# and XAML source code is available in the Blueprint Edition.

This release is the latest in a series of upgrades and updates that have made Xceed DataGrid for WPF Professional Edition the leading WPF datagrid on the third-party component market. In under two years, the product has undergone three major upgrades (two of which were in 2008), four minor upgrades, and 11 service releases, all of which are available to Vanguard subscribers.

Xceed DataGrid for WPF Express Edition v3.0 is scheduled for release in Q4 of 2008.
